Lew's BB-2Z Speed Spool Casting Reel

Offering increased line capacity thanks to its wide spool design, the Lew's BB-2Z Speed Spool Casting Reel still maintains a low-profile that is easily palmable. Its lightweight, rigid one-piece die-cast aluminum frame also keeps all of the reel’s inner workings in perfect alignment, while its 10 double-shielded ball bearing system ensures consistently fluid casts and retrieves.

In addition to its Positive On/Off Smart Plus Six Pin Centrifugal Braking System, it also features an oversized titanium line guide positioned further away from the spool to minimize line friction and increase casting performance. The rugged carbon composite drag system has also been beefed up to deliver up to 14lbs of drag power, and even comes equipped with a convenient audible clicked bowed metal drag star. Perfect for making long casts and fishing bigger baits, the Lew's BB-2Z Speed Spool Casting Reel is another quality reel from the company that started the baitcasting reel craze.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I paired this up with a 7' 2" Heavy, Shimano Compre with Suffix 832 65lb braid. I use it for punching matts and lillies, and also for frogging. This real is amazing, casts so far, even with a heavy rod. The retieve is so smooth and it hauls in line, it really gets fish to the boat. The drag is extremely strong, I catch 7lbers in some serious slop and pads, and the drag never budges. I must say it is a little on the heavy side, but it really doesn't matter, because this real is meant to be put on a larger rod, so it actually balances out my combo quite nicely. I LOVE THIS REAL. Definitely recommend buying one.

From: Riley: Ellicot City, MD 11/12/14

Comments: Just got my first lews, I spooled 15 pound mono on and a 3/8 bullet weight and started casting in the yard. In a short time I could cast fifty yards with ease; However, when I switched to a 3/16 weight I just couldn't get a good cast.  Spent 90 minutes adjusting just couldn't make it happen. I'll keep this for 3/8 and up but will use my bread and butter bait cast reals for accurate 3/16 oz. casts.

From: Fishin Dude: OH 7/15/14

Comments: Pleasantly surprised by this reel.  I usually go with Daiwa or Shimano, but thought I would give this a try since it's quite a bit cheaper than the curado 300 and I previously owned a lexa 300 and I wasn't too impressed.  This reel seems pretty great so far, casts very well and is solid.  It holds 90 yards of 80 lb. Fins XS braid.  I have the 7.1 and I use it to throw punkers.  I would recommend.

From: Gail: IN 6/29/14

Comments: This reel is amazing. Very smooth with powerful drag. I use mine to cast big swimbaits and it works great. Trust me this reel is worth it.
